Oppo F1 Plus Review

Oppo promised to us that the F1 Plus will be their selfie expert but not just for me as it was my first time to check out this pretty new SoC. Is it worth for the price. Here is my Oppo F1 Plus revuew

On form factor, the phone has the "most" so far in the bezel-less phone race so far that I am quite afraid at first to drop it plus the very thin F1 Plus gave me the confidence to grab it on one hand. The 5.5 inch AMOLED display was a charm for my media consumption hours.

F1 Plus has the latest ColorOS based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It was pretty much the looks of the latest iOS especially in multitasking but this is most polished version that I felt so far even if to compare with the F1




Calls, texts, mobile data, WiFi and Bluetooth had no problems for me even though that it does not have LTE only connection but the huge deal for me (that I brought to an Oppo PH official) is the lac of search to manual network which is pretty important for me (and possibly for you) if your LTE connection is kinda tricky and it will work that easily on going on to connect automatically.



Audio playback via earphones is also great and I love their default music player that they used.

On battery usage, I ran my usual video battery rundown test and it scored 11 hours and 2 minutes from 100% to 2%. In my mixed usage this time with more random touches of LTE usage, I had 18 hours of usage with average of 5 hours of screen on time. The big deal for me is the VOOC charging technology which it is my first time to use it. From 0% to 100%, I only need 68 minutes to fully charge the phone.

With the 2.0 GHz variant of Mediatek Helio P10 octa-core processor, it scored at over 51,000 on Antutu and got 10 point multi touch. The phone has 7 out of 9 sensors.


On gaming, it gave me a little doubt on running Asphalt 8 on high settings. I experienced a few minor lags on the default battery mode even for the phone's 4 GB RAM which is pretty weird compared to my recently reviewed phone with the lower 1.8 GHz variant of the said SoC and half the size of the RAM. I wonder if I have to put some blame on the custom OS but Modern Combat 5 is a-ok for this one.

During the media launch, they thrown a huge focus on the phone being a selfie expert but I just discovered that it has a pretty sizeable expert mode which might even top off my current daily driver. Yes, the auto mode worked wonders in almost any lighting conditions. The ISO can go at 1600,  a lot of filter options and shutter speed of up to 10 seconds which did a pretty great job. The number of photo samples that I uploaded for this blog post that I had a good time on the camera department.


You can check out the rear camera samples on daylight








And at artificial light and low light


Lowlight normal to HDR comparison



Panorama test


Regular to full zoom comparison





They also had an expert mode from saturation, exposure, filter and shutter speed up to 8 seconds. I had the shutter speed at 2 and 4 seconds for this test.



For that really selfie expert test, I had the regular and beauty mode on set on natural at level 2



You can also customize on how rosy or how fair you want to your selfie so I had the full fair and full rosy complexion comparison shot in ATC in a pretty good lighting environment.



It also had some good output on low light


Extras: I just found out that the F1 Plus does not have an FM radio. It was a huge deal for me which I hope Oppo will consider for future devices with the same category (some of their midrange and entry level phones have that).

Oppo PH just had a price adjustment of the F1 Plus from Php 21,990 to Php 19,990. That might be still a bit high for me but the form factor, almost bezel-less screen, very good dual cameras and a-ok in almost all aspects of a premium mid range phone are here remind me that those factors that I need to pay off so I will gonna score a 4.25 out of 5 for the Oppo F1 Plus
